D. H. Lawrence Quotes

Try to find your deepest issue in every confusion, and abide by that.

~ D. H. Lawrence

The human soul needs actual beauty more than bread.

~ D. H. Lawrence

Life is ours to be spent, not to be saved.

~ D. H. Lawrence

Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration.

~ D. H. Lawrence

I believe a man is born first unto himself-for the happy developing of himself, while the world is a nursery, and the pretty things are to be snatched for, and pleasant things tasted some people seem to exist thus right to the end. But most are born again on entering manhood then they are born to humanity, to a consciousness of all the laughing, and the never-ceasing murmur of pain and sorrow that comes from the terrible multitudes of brothers.

~ D. H. Lawrence

It is a fine thing to establish one's own religion in one's heart, not to be dependent on tradition and second-hand ideals. Life will seem to you, later, not a lesser, but a greater thing.

~ D. H. Lawrence

How beautiful maleness is, if it finds its right expression.

~ D. H. Lawrence

We ought to dance with rapture that we might be alive - and part of the living, incarnate cosmos.

~ D. H. Lawrence

We and the cosmos are one. The cosmos is a vast body, of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great gleaming nerve-centre from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us or Venus But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time... Now all this is literally true, as men knew in the great past and as they will know again.

~ D. H. Lawrence

hy doesn't the past decently bury itself, instead of sitting waiting to be admired by the present

~ D. H. Lawrence
